(VIDEO) Driving an electric Formula 1 in the streets of Rome, 2014 E-Prix teaser

To celebrate the announcement of the first official European candidate for the FIA Formula E Championship "E-Prix" in Europe -and second in the world after Rio de Janeiro- the Formulec EF01 paraded through the streets of Rome.


Unusual images ... The conditions were "happily" less dantesque than during the demonstration in Moscow...

The organization of the FIA Formula E has been delegated to the company or Formula E Holdings or FEH specially created.


As we told you in a previous article, the Formulec EF01 is currently the only running prototype (developed since 2010) but the championship is also open to other manufacturers with a recent order of 42 vehicles by the FEH to 
Spark Racing Technologies, which has teamed with MacLaren.

Luca di Grassi is the first driver to hit the streets of Rome in an openwheeler, with a passage at the Colosseum.

After further demonstrations next year, in 2014 we could witness the Rome electric grand-prix, a race among the 10 planned for the opening of the Championship!
